On the road again. Leaving Circus Hostel as seen with the lion entrance. Best hostel I have ever stayed at, more like a boutique hotel with both dorm and private rooms.

It is a Deutsche Bahn bus operated by the German rail company and complete with WiFi, bathroom, food and drink vending machine, comfortable seats and a bathroom that you don't have to pay for.
Looking forward to seeing Eastern Europe having only read about and seen pictures with little understanding of what is there or the cultures. I also understand it is much less expensive than Germany which makes being in the D.C. area seem like a bargain.Read more
